Authored by James M. Glenn, Silverpoint Drawing Complete provides information and materials on and for the silverpoint medium. Mr. Glenn, who is a practicing artist with a MFA from Ohio University, has created a complete resource center for artists and anyone else interested in silverpoint drawing. The site offers a brief history section that includes an essay on writing technology development entitled "From Pencils to Pixels: The Stages of Literacy Technology" by Dennis Baron. This site also offers two galleries, one of which links to images of "Old Master" and modern master metalpoint drawings, while the other links to images by contemporary artists on offsite galleries and museums. Additionally, the site has a workshop sections that illustrates the procedure of silverpoint drawing, and a materials section that lists available materials including "points, stylus, grounds, ground materials, plus do-it-yourself alternatives." In short, it is an enriching site for art students and enthusiasts.
